Ethical Wine Movement: Sustainable Agriculture

Caring for the land has always been a forefront of the farming practices at Benziger, not only because it is the right thing to do, but it also results in higher quality wine and preserving the land for generations to come. All four estate vineyards are Demeter-certified Biodynamic, the highest level of organic farming. Chris Benziger describes in a recent feature with “One of the great benefits of Biodynamic farming is the roots are encouraged to dig deep for nutrients and water. They have better resilience to drought and other weather extremes. Also, the deeper the roots, the greater potential for complexity...The result is more terroir."
